Bud Powell was one of those very few special innovators who permanently changed the way that his instrument is played in jazz. Prior to Powell's arrival on the scene, pianists kept time with their left hand, stating the beat by striding back and forth between bass notes and chords while their right played melodic variations. When Powell rose to prominence in 1945, his style was a revelation. He stated chords with his left hand on an irregular basis as if he were a drummer hitting the bass drum while his right played rapid single note lines like a horn player. This became the way to play jazz piano.
